I must admit to waking up yesterday morning and hearing the news of the unrest in the UK with 'well I told you so' - it was always going to happen at some point in the near future with every well meaning do-gooder saying we have to support young disenfranchised people in attaining well-being.. never mind telling them that life will not consist of a lifetime of benefits and handouts but will require them to put in hard work and more hard work.

Now they think that the world owes them a living, they survive on benefits and handouts they don't try to get a job and many of them involved in gangs where survival means having bigger knives, more weapons etc no wonder our country is in rack and ruin.

Time to get tough, name and shame the criminal thugs that make life difficult and dangerous, who wantonly destroy other people's livelihoods and raid shops for goods which no doubt will end up being sold to provide highs to a smaller number of people.

Stop tying the hands of the people who protect us, namely the police, give them the powers they need (and the wherewithall to contain the problem) if that means water cannon and rubber bullets then so be it.. let us reclaim the peace that this country prides itself in and if they don't want to live in this society where we value hard work and community spirit then the door to elsewhere will be opened for you.

Couldn't agree more Sage. I don't understand why they didn't bring on water cannon from the beginning. They used it often enough in northern Ireland during the 'troubles' there!

Right Sage. Remarkable interview just after 8am this morning on BBC Radio Leeds. You really must try to find it on the iPlayer. Link on my latest post. G
